Gioia Gives Bill Lynch Another Crack at Mark Green

In signing up with Eric Gioia’s campaign, Bill Lynch said the choice was obvious.
“I cannot think of a major issue in the City in the last decade that Eric hasn’t been deeply involved in,” Lynch said in a public statement released by the campaign. “And he has spent more time in more different communities getting to know the diverse people of our town than anyone.”
Certainly, there’s something of a convergence of interests here on the merits. Gioia is planning to court the black vote aggressively, and he often mentions the challenges faced by residents in Harlem–where Lynch’s office is based, and where his influence is the strongest.
